My new short stories

Though I don’t write many short stories, I must have been on a roll last year, and now out come two new short stories in anthologies within a few months of each other. Check ’em out:

The Razor’s Edge

One man’s insurgent is another man’s freedom fighter…

From The Moon is a Harsh Mistress to The Hunger Games, there is something compelling about someone who throws caution to the wind and rises up in armed defiance against oppression, tyranny, religion, the government—you name it.

Win or lose, it’s the righteous struggle we cherish, and those who take up arms for a cause must walk The Razor’s Edge between liberator and extremist.

With stories by Blake Jessop, William C. Dietz, D.B. Jackson, Gerald Brandt, Sharon P. Goza, Walter H. Hunt, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, Steve Perry, Seanan McGuire, Christopher Allenby, Chris Kennedy, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., Alex Gideon, Brian Hugenbruch, and Y.M. Pang.

And my story, “The Gunslinger.” Meet Maximillian, a notorious killer whom everyone agrees deserves what’s coming, an unthinkable justice. Unless he repents. Max won’t of course, and now must turn to an innocent young woman to save him from his implacable jailers.

Avatar Dreams

The development of “Avatar” technology—the fusion of human awareness consciousness with remote robotic bodies—offers breathtaking advances in medicine, culture, work, transportation, education and imagination.

The transformational potential of avatars is endless—and in these fourteen stories, you will imagine a group of remote spectators traveling remotely during a rigorous mountain climbing expedition. Or a severely injured athlete able to play his favorite sport vicariously through another body.  Or medical specialists using avatar bodies to enter hot zones that no vulnerable human can breach.

With stories by: KEVIN J. ANDERSON,  MIKE RESNICK, TINA GOWER, KEVIN IKENBERRY ANDREA G.STEWART, MARTIN L.SHOEMAKER, RON COLLINS, HARRY DOCKLOOR, OSH VOGT, MARINA J.LOSTETTER, BRAD R.TORGERSEN, TODD J.MCCAFFREY, JODY LYNN NYE.

And my story, “The Gathering” about a man who loves butterflies who defies a despotic ruler to give his people a glimpse of the greatest moment in human history: The touch of an alien.

A teaser on Book 2:
